I have a permission though work to shoot Boar/Deer in France; I intend to go across about twice a year for this. Currently I have a .308 (not legal apparently) and a .243 (too small).
I like my .308 PH scout but have my eye on another .308 so was considering getting the PH rebarreled/chambered (it probably needs it anyway) and putting in a variation for another calibre. If I'm having a rebarelling done I'd like the rifle to be good for Deer, Boar and a bit of target (out to 600m). The PH is the mauser 98 long action so could probably do a number of calibers.
I had initially wanted either a .260 rem or 6.5 x 47 (1 gun for deer, fox, boar) but is this too small?
Do I go bigger than the .308 or go inbetween .243 and .308 and get a one gun for everything?
Your thoughts please!
Thanks in advance.
